New model releasing 15/6 available to pre-order. Online only, home delivery only.

Good price for a huge 85" TV. EKO TVs seem to be pretty decent from what I've read on OzB.

    Sounds like an LG TV

      BargainSnatcher, I wonder who really makes them, and how inefficient on power they are.

      Not the same quality, for sure. It had this brand, never more.

      I was going to make a similar comment. Obviously not OLED but the WebOS and Magic Remote with ThinQ and dedicated Netflix and Prime Video buttons give me those vibes

      Yes, webOS and Magic Remote, LG features?

    I've had the 75" WebOs version bought earlier this year and so far I've been thoroughly impressed with it. I have a Samsung 75" (bought this year) also to compare with and picture quality wise they are on par. The main downside for me compared to the Sammy is the lack of certain apps like Disney+, Kayo and Binge. The Samsung has it all while this doesn't.

    Maybe a deal breaker for some people.

      Hardly a deal breaker when you can get a chromecast or Android box for missing apps

      • +3 votes

        Of course there are workarounds but doesn't beat native options with one remote.

        •  

          I guess that's a compromise people have to make. Save $500 odd dollars VS the 82" Samsung or have to deal with using the normal remote for fta TV.

            @krisspy: Also, TV's are a lot less likely to receive ongoing updates compared to the Chromecast.

          •  

            @krisspy: obviously wont just be that. samsung will obviously have better picture, sounds ect.

              @ubcool: You'd be surprised, base model Samsung's often have no better PQ than many no-name TV's. You generally have to go up to a Q60 to start seeing differences.

                @Dogsrule: The entry level bigger brand names do typically offer similar quality to these lesser name brand ones. The area the more known brands will typically win is in quality control. While you’ll still get duds with the more known brands it’s typically less likely.

                  @Ronnnie: Yeah that's true, I guess it depends what your risk appetite is like. If it was between this and the 82" Samsung TU8000 in this deal for ~$1800, I'd go the Sammy. But that was a clearance for last years model and now the cheapest 85" Sammy is the AU8000 which goes for $2700, double the price of this deal.

                  Something to think about.

      There's a "new" 75" version with Android TV advertised in the catalogue too for anyone interested - $975 (I'm assuming that's the one even though it's saying unavailable atm.) Might add to OP.

      I too brought this 75 WebOs version for $799 which I mainly use for Netflix YouTube and general streaming services.I've been pretty impressed with it to be honest especially for the price I paid for it..At the end of thje day you can always add an Andriod box/Amazon Firestick or Chromecast if you need to…….

    I had a QLED Version of this TV - 65 inch.

    Pros:

    Good Quality TV
    Android built-in

    Cons:

    Pixel response time (mainly with black is bad)
    Gets slow after some days. Needs to be restarted.
    Huge Yellow leak of light at all corner (terrible, looks liked someone pissed on your TV)
    Motion Interpolation and HDR non existent.

    Buy something smaller but at least a hisense.

      I think there's a mistake with your list, lack of motion Interpolation should be in "pros"

        You can always disable that if you want, not in this TV though.

    I have the Eko 65". The software is pretty buggy, but workable.

    The actualy screen (quality) is fantastic (I did a vid here a while back: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qO3KdjjhGss)

    If ithe OS gets too bad, I'd recommend using the TV in combination with one of those of the new Google Chromecasts with Google TV (not one of the older chromecasts).

    It's essentially a complete OS replacement for your TV (it comes with a remote, which you can turn the tv on/off from).

      Ozbargain Username is on point.

  •  

    215cm…that's a big TV.

  •  

    Which are generally the better Eko's, the ones with WebOS or Android?
    I thought I read the Android ones aren't as laggy? Maybe consider a streaming box like Google/Apple TV as part of the purchase with this one. Still crazy cheap for the size

    •  

      Probably much of a muchness. Luck of the draw. Some people claim these TVs have as good if not better pictures quality as the big brands like Samsung entry level options etc. My bet is quality control is lower on these to keep costs down and your mileage could vary greatly. The Lucky few will score a good unit, unlucky ones will end up with the quality you expect at this price point. I doubt the webos or Android version are much different in terms of quality.

      I have the 65in Android version of the EKO purchased during the boxing day sales in 2019. Very happy with it overall. OS sometime slows down menu navigation, but restart from settings fixes it.

  •  

    I was a bit skeptical about the quality till I realized it's HDR

    • +1 vote

      It can be HDR capable, doesn't mean it will be capable of handling the content well.
      I'm tempted for the price but would want to see it in store first I think. Being so big, it's a hassle to return if it's no good.

    •  

      Every TV is hdr now. It's like saying new cars are "sport", sure it can go to the track and try being sporty but in essence it's useless.

      Unless it's Dolby vision certified, it's sh*tty hdr

    • +2 votes

      HDR on cheap TVs are just saying the hardware can decode HDR source instead of showing a black screen. You won't be able to see the real difference <1000 nit which most of the cheapies lack

    I have the ALDI 65" from 2-3 years ago for $599

    I can't complain, but off course my mates $1,500 is better!

    It is bleeding/leaking some colour from the bottom? Not sure what it's called, I thought about returning it but Aldi is 12 months warranty only I believe.

    • +3 votes

      So a different, older TV from a different store?

    •  

      Late reply, but you still have coverage under Aus consumer law. This goes well beyond the 12 months and Aldi are well versed in how to help customers outside of the limited warranty.

  •  

    I have the 75” tv from the previous deals- it’s a great tv! Only downside is due to it being webOS, it doesn’t have the Disney+, Optus sports and perhaps other apps you might look for. Since I have my Xbox connected to it as well, I just go onto my Xbox to access those that aren’t available natively on the tv.

    Pretty good bang for the buck.

    I purchased EKO 65" QLED 4K Frameless TV 6 months ago and remote works erratically.
    I need to get the remote really close to the TV and at times need to press it a few times to make it work.
    I have replaced the batteries and also a tried a replacement remote but the same problem persist
